Opening Prayer (Unison)

Miraculous God, come to us now, even as your Son came to ​​those first disciples.  Speak your peace to our hearts. Touch ​​us with your Holy Spirit.  Reveal your word, that we may hear ​​your message this day, and live as your disciples in the days ​​and years to come.  In Christ’s name, we pray. Amen.


Opening Hymn – Thine Be the Glory​ – #308 UMH

Affirmation of Faith#889 UMH

Leader: There is one God and there is one mediator, Christ Jesus, who ​​​came as a ransom for all, to whom we testify.

People:​ This saying is sure and worthy of full acceptance: that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners, and was manifested in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by ​​​angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed in throughout ​​the world, taken up in glory.  Great indeed is the mystery of the gospel. Amen.
